Rock/Creek Race Team Sets Course Records at Black Warrior 50k

Black Warrior 50kIt should be considered mild to say that the Rock/Creek Race Team ran well this weekend. The Black Warrior 50K on Saturday met the runners with fantastic weather and a sloppy course due to recent rain and what appeared to be many herds of horses shortly thereafter. The mud should have led to some slower times than previous years, but previous years have not seen the likes of the Dials and Matt Sims. Jamie Dial won and broke the old coarse record set by Dewayne Satterfield who has won over 50 ultras, and Wendi Parker-Dial broke Kris Whorton‘s record by nearly 9 minutes (Kris placed second). The remaining R/C team members that ran the 50K, Natalie Sims and Randy Whorton also placed well. The 25K was dominated by Matt Sims, also breaking the old record.
On Sunday the first ever Southern 6 was run. Johanna Gartman finished first female. Sheridan Ames dominated the men’s masters division, and for some unknown reason, Randy and Kris and a few other Sat 50K’ers, Lee and Brenda Simiril decided to give it a go. Kris won the woman’s masters division and Randy placed third master. This race should prove to be a most popular event in years to come. Fantastic organization and course.
